I’ve was into APM 2.0’s approximately a year ago with my hexacopter when I had a radio issue and I then sold it all. Over the last little while I have gotten back into FPV again and I’ve started to build up an Axial SCX10 Trail Chassis that I had, into an autonomous ROV. It is powered by an Axial AE-2 ESC and a RC4wd 35t motor. For the photos I had on Proline Trencher 2.8” Tires but I’m finding my turning circle is the pits so last night I put on my 2.2” Trenchers and it seems to have improved.
Currently I’m controlling the rig with a Dx5e. I do plan on migrating this to a higher channel Tx in the hopefully near future so that I can again have head-tracking capabilities. I currently have the throttle and steering on my left stick as it keeps this straight for when I’m flying aerial platforms as well. By using the throttle it also gives a bit of a cruise control aspect to set the throttle and do other things on straights like manipulate a pan/tilt with the right stick for now.
The FPV setup is from nghobbies.com on 900mhz. Noted the Ogpro on the front will be replaced with a 600 lined CCD camera whenever it arrives. The gopro will go back in its case.
